I've had a brown "mask" on my cheeks since pregnancy - the Fraxel laser removed it completely and Dr. Nichols was able to counsel me how best to maintain the results. While she said I might need 2 treatments - it's been 4 months and it still looks very good! However, it is important to... READ MORE

I have spent thousands of dollars at Dr. Friendman's office and I would spend thousands more. His treatments, over the course of two years, have completely changed my life. I had given up hope with my adult acne until I tried him. Smooth beam combined with Fraxel fixed it all and now I have... READ MORE

I am fairly young looking, but outside quite a bit so wanted to improve my skin tone, texture, minimize fine wrinkles etc. I had Fraxel yesterday at 2PM in a plastic surgeon's office (she also does my botox). It was more painful than I thought it was going to be and I was very red and puffy... READ MORE

I am a 41 year old Asian female. I have always had good skin and complexion. Over the years and after two pregnancies coupled with being on synthetic thyroid hormones, I have developed some light melasma on my cheeks. These darker marks could easily be covered when I wear makeup so I never... READ MORE

I had Fraxel restore to help Melasma. I was repeatedly assured that it would be safe to use on my skin tone. I am hispanic with light olive complexion. It has now been four full months and I am still dealing with sever hyperpigmentation. There is a clear demarcation line on my upper cheeks... READ MORE

I had my first of 3 sessions for Fraxel Restore on 21 May 2013. I am a 33yr old Caucasian male from Ireland. Since 2010 tanning attempts my forehead became covered in wrinkles, fine lines and pores. It has definitely made an improvement in the wrinkles. I don't have deep wrinkles there any... READ MORE

I had been looking for a procedure to deal with the really annoying fine lines protruding from my mouth, and the "crepy" look on my neck. Dr. Gidon (Toronto) recommended Fraxel for both areas, and I couldn't be happier. I noticed a difference (minimized fine lines) that I hadn't expected, and I... READ MORE

I had an erbium laser done under my eyes and it worked fairly well but my bumps returned quickly (had that done twice) and I was told that the fractional C02 laser was the best treatment for this skin problem, so I went to a nearby place that offered it. They did my whole face, which honestly I... READ MORE

I decided to undergo Fraxel purely for acne scaring from high school and college under the encouragement of my dermatologist. The scaring was not that visible but it made me self conscious. I underwent 5 treatments and I regret it. I used to always get told I looked like I was in my 20's, not... READ MORE

Had Fraxel Restore on my face, neck and chest this evening. It was painful, even with the numbing cream, ice, Xanax and Percocet. She went over it with 2 passes of one wavelength and 6 passes with another. Apparently I have a low pain tolerance. I currently look and feel like I have a sunburn... READ MORE

Did this procedure for the marks on my face not really that bad but had a few that bothered me, did the laser treatment, it was a bit uncomfortable on the last pass of the laser buT it was tolerable (HAD THE AIR CONDITIONING ON MY FACE FULL BLAST FOR ALMOST AN HOUR AFTER) They supplied a diary...

I had a series of treatments for the white/silvery stretchmarks on my upper arms I got during puberty. I was excited to finally have the time and money to treat them. The procedure was incredibly painful, it felt like my skin was getting injected with fire, but I toughed it out with the hope... READ MORE

This was my first "real" cosmetic treatment, besides botox. Dr. Butani was great. She explained all my choices and I knew what to except (Fraxel Dual)l. She's got a great feel about her and the new office is totally beautiful. The procedure was just as she described. 4 days of healing and... READ MORE

I had the Fraxel Dual procedure done at Dr. Numa's office. I looked bronzed at first (as explained to me by his staff). After a few days, silky smooth skin with a remarkable decrease in the sun spots. It even made my eyelid bags look better! Looking forward to the rest of the treatments... READ MORE

I have been using Skinfo Products for years. Usually I have them delivered but now that there's a location in Glencoe, I can walk over! My daughter-in-law also orders from Skinfo via me as she lives in London, England, and cannot order overseas on-line. The London daughter-in-law arranged for... READ MORE

I has some dark spots in my face that I heate, and my husband make commentaries about it, so ten last year I decided to start with the fraxel. I had been living in Monterrey, Mexico and found an excelent doctor Marcos Fahme and the cost I think is not as expensive as in USA I payed aroun 650. 00... READ MORE

I had the Fraxel procedure done at Dr. Hankins' Lake Havasu City office. Cadia was the Certified Laser Tech that performed the procedure and she was awesome! Numbing cream was applied to my face prior to the procedure and the discomfort was minimal. A week after the procedure my skin was... READ MORE

I am in my 40s and I was concerned about the texture of my skin, pore size and firmness. I did a lot of research and eventually chose "the father of fraxel" Dr. Fitzpatrick. I chose him because I read that fraxel could be painful and less experienced physicians usually had bad or average... READ MORE

Hello, I tried Fraxel for 4 treatments on my stetch marks on stomach area and it did not work. My stomach did feel smoother but that was it. Nothing dramatic enough that made the 2k that I spent worth it. I guess its not for everyone. My stomach was red for a few days and looks like it was... READ MORE

I have seen many different people at many different offices over the years, but this one will stick. Dr. Ahn and his staff are first rate in every sense - from the comfortable and beautiful surroundings, highly professional yet very caring staff and expert treatments. I could not recommend more...
